Summary: I bought this phone because HTC showed that they would be pushing Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) for Virgin Mobile. This software update finally occured the last week of June 2014. The upgrade went well. Battery life for me seems to have improved after the upgrade. I like that the newsfeed page can be disabled. I didn't use it anyway.
Summary: This is an excellent phone for it's price point! It's not a premium handset, but it's not far behind either! My only wish is that it had beats audio. Other than that, the phone has all the features I want in a smartphone.The front facing speakers are AWESOME! They alone make this a great buy!
Summary: Great phone, not that difficult as People says, if you are tect savvy. Great feel love the customization so much. The back camera is good with flash not as bad as they say but the front sucks, worst than my iPhone, good video music sounds good, if you get a sd card(cheap off amazon)when you put it in you have to turn it off than on again it took me forever to figure that out because they don't tell you.
Summary: I have had my phone for a couple of weeks now and have not had any problems with it. I am happy with the battery life, camera quality and the call quality. I do not have a lot of apps, so that probably helps with the battery life.
Summary: This is my second HTC phone from Virgin Mobile and I really love it! It has the features I want and it is easy to understand and operate. Activation was quick and simple. The best thing is the no-contract price of $45 each month. I recommend this smart phone and would purchase HTC again.
Happy with my Smartphone named Desire (sounds like a movie title!)

Summary: I haven't found anything to complain about. It's full-featured, lightweight and reliable. The camera and video are good, and I'm enjoying the 4G speed (since I used to have slow 3G) from Virgin Mobile. The battery life seems good so far, but I'm not a "power user" so that could be the reason. I saw no reason to spend a lot more for the newest Samsung, when the HTC serves my needs.
